I love Johnny Depp in that pirate movie, whatever that character’s name is. Yeah, Jack Sparrow. I love that swagger he had. It’s so much like Keith Richards, too. He plays a lot of characters in his films that I’m sure people wish they were more like. I think his character in Pirates of the Caribbean was the coolest, though.
From Tijuana (Administrative Assistant)
My character would be Batman. He’s a real person. He doesn’t have any super powers, so it is realistic that someone like him could exist in society. He’s rich, he does good for society, and he doesn’t kill anyone. Since he doesn’t have to depend on anyone financially, he’s able to get the best and newest technological gadgets out there to help him with battling evil. Plus, I’d get to drive the Batmobile.
From Mira Mesa (Student)
If I had more time to think about it, I might say something different. I’m thinking of all the superheroes that come to mind. I’ll say Peter Parker and Spiderman. I want all those webs. And, of course, climbing buildings and swinging around from place to place. And you have those times where you aren’t Spiderman, just Parker.
From Mira Mesa (Waitress)
I don’t know. Oh wait, it would have to be Superwoman. I could have a big S on my chest. I do everything already. I have two teenagers, and I work really hard. I’m not picking her because of looks, really. I’m just thinking of all the other perks you would get by being Superwoman.
From San Diego (Entrepreneur)
I would say Superman. He’s amazing. All people want the strength and the ability to be able to fly and pick up anything. I’d join the NFL and not tell anyone I’m Superman. I would end up being the best player ever. I guess there are a lot of things you could do as Superman.
From Santee (Plumber)
I’d like to pick a fictional character from an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel that is rich and goes to swanky parties. Or, someone from Hemingway or Jack London, that goes on adventures. Also, it would make me appear to be well read. But the simple truth is, I’d love to be the lead guitarist of Spinal Tap. I can’t pick the drummer, they all die. So, move over Nigel Tufnel.
